Do you have the very latest (a week old) Service Pack SF64217 for 5769XE1 V4R5M0 ?
I have, and just tested Data Transfer from AS/400 with no problem.

Have you checked QSYSOPR & the QHST log for any other errors/hints ?
Maybe the joblog for the QZDASOINIT job ?  (There could be more than one active, check them all).

As a workaround, have you tried running the download as QSECOFR in case it's an authority problem ?
Also you could use FTP to get the file until the Data Transfer problem is resolved.

        Subject:        Problems with data transfer utility for CA

I seem to be unable to use the data transfer utility in CA.  I'm using CA
Express V4R5, and OS V4R5.  I'm trying to transfer a file from the 400 to my
desktop.  I loaded the latest PTF CUME for OS/400, plus a CA fix.  I've also
installed the latest service pack on the client (PC).  It returns a message
CWBDB0058: unable to start database server due to comm error. return code:
It provides a few solutions, which I've tried.  When I use cwbping, there is
an error related to database server, but it goes by so fast, I can't tell
what it says completely.  I used the STRPJ command to start program QZDAINIT
in LIB QIWS in subsystem QSERVER, as the help message suggests.  No change.
I tried the STRHOSTSRV command to start *all and *database servers.  No
change.  I also used the START TCP servers option on the TCP menu, and still
no change.
I'm sort of desperate to figure this out as it's the only way I have to post
my booklist on our website.  Any suggestions would be most appreciated!
